The statement “I am not a tailor, i’m a fashion designer’ is common among ‘Tailors/Fashion designers’ these days. They prefer to be refered to as ‘Fashion Designers’ because of the glamour that comes with it. Apparently being refered to as a ‘Tailor’ is diminishing.
However, one actor who is never ashamed to be called a tailor is Elikem Kumordzi, whose story is different.
“Honestly I see nothing wrong being referred to as a tailor. I am proud of it” The ex Big Brother Africa housemate said. “There are people who have issues with that name but I actually enjoy it. Though I have people who help me in my line of work, I do sit behind the machine to sew and I design as well,” he said.
Kumordzie and his wife Pokello who was also a Big Brother housemate, welcomed their first bouncing baby girl few months ago.
The couple tied the knot June last year after three years of dating.
